Praying for Members of Our Vibrant Family

Praying for Members of Our Vibrant Family

As we strive to serve in the image of Jesus the Christ we become aware that Jesus prayed unceasingly for others. There is a community of believers in our church who pray for members.  This Intercessory Prayer group receive a list of individual prayer concerns and joys weekly from Rev. Gary Rideout.

Another small group who intercede in prayer on behalf of our community is Gathered In His Name. This group uses the prayer list but also prays for our church leadership, our mission teams, specific ministries, and world social justice issues.

As a congregation, we are all called to pray for those whose names are in the bulletin each Sunday. We are not given the specific prayer concerns, but we can ask God to bless these individuals. It is a privilege and honor to pray for others. By doing this we are caring for and supporting members of our vibrant family through God’s grace.

If you have a prayer request or if you are interested in joining one of these groups, contact Rev. Gary Rideout at

For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.” Matthew 18:20
